North British Single Grain Scotch Whisky, 28y 1994
Highlands, The Whisky Cellar, 750 ml
|Producer:||The Whisky Cellar|
|Origin:||Scotland / Highlands|
This Northern British 1994 matured for a full 28 years in a first fill ex-bourbon cask and proves once again how good the style of these single grain whiskies can be, made in the right hands. Already the nose reveals its matured aromas, reminiscent of lemon zest, vanilla cream and caramel wafers. On the palate, accompanied by vanilla ice cream, white chocolate and grated nutmeg, this Single Grain ends in a long finish with hints of vanilla from Madagascar and liquorice. This is an exclusive bottling for Baur au Lac Vins in collaboration with The Whisky Cellar.

Highlands: Clans, Schafe, Whiskys
Die schottischen Highlands, die nur wenige Kilometer nördlich von Glasgow beginnen, und sich von dort über fast 400 Kilometer bis zum nördlichsten Zipfel des schottischen Festlandes ziehen, sind eine mystische Landschaft. Seit Jahrhunderten wird hier die Politik und die Kultur von alteingesessenen Clans bestimmt. Auf dem kargen Hügelland dominiert die Schafzucht. Zudem reifen hier einige der komplexesten und elegantesten Single Malts.
Scotland – Wild history, warming whisky
Whiskey, bagpipes, kilts – These are the most famous elements of Scottish culture. It has not been conclusively determined who invented whisky. The Scots and Irish both argue that they invented the “water of life.” Food and drink definitely tops the Scottish export categories. Every second, around 40 bottles of whisky are purchased. So it’s hardly surprising that whisky makes up around 80 percent of total food and drink exports.
